Hi, I'm trying to make a page on our dept website with photos of all the staff and students. I like the ease of ImageGallery, but I want to be able to put the person's name under their picture so we can search by name or by face. I've got as far as figuring out that the bit I want to edit is in $GalleryLayout, but this doesn't appear to be a file, or at least not one I can find. Am I going to find it easier to just create an Image DataObjectManager thing?
Yup. Use an ImageDOM. ImageGallery is just going to get in your way.
You could also subclass ImageGalleryPage and ImageGalleryItem with your own classes. In your ImageGalleryPage subclass, add:
protected $itemClass = "YourImageGalleryItemSubclass";
And in YourImageGalleryItemSubclass, add all the custom fields you like.
I have edited the GalleryUI_layout.ss file so it includes the image and caption below it -
<% control GalleryItems %>
<% end_control %>
Is there a way I can make the Caption a link similar to the specific GalleryItem? Cheers!
I am new at a lot of this with silverstripe and I would like to make the ImageGallery Caption be able to be multiline when on hover and on click can you help me this is the website http://www.lumoswebdesign.com.au/portfolio/album/website
Well there are a number of ways to do that, but if you're not comfortable with programming, then I'd say the easiest solution is to wrap the caption in a <pre> tag. :)

thank you UncleCheese
That is good can you tell me in what file in ImageGallery I would do the modify code in.
What we did is add a replace to the title attribute.
and line 140 change
descriptions = ($(this).attr('title')) ? $(this).attr('title') : '';
descriptions = ($(this).attr('title')) ? $(this).attr('title').replace(/\n/g,'<br />') : '';
thank you that did the job
